In rescue, no matter what type, you're often called on to help animals outside of your norm.

Possums, birds, rats, guinea pigs, Chipmunk....

Oh, have you met Chipmunk? One look at him and you will not, for one second, doubt where he got his name.

His cheeks have been searched, he is not hiding any kitty contraband. They are not due to kitty cosmetic surgery. They are not AI enhanced.

They are real and they are fabulous!

While most chipmunks want nuts and seeds, ours wants catnip...lots of it.

Chipmunk is great with other cats and people. We do not know how he would be with dogs.

Will his cheeks break the internet? Will our email servers break with a flood of applications? Or will just his heart break from not getting one single application?

Chipmunk is 3 years old, healthy, neutered, vaccinated, negative for FeLV, litter trained and microchipped. Chipmunk is positive for FIV.
